's not like they are probing into kathleen sebelius, her private business. we paid for this thing. this is our website. we paid for it, the american taxpayer. and our representatives said to the administration how much are we getting? how many people are we getting? how is our product that we paid for working? and they refuse to tell us. and now we know why. because we've got -- we've gotten this from darrell issa the committee on oversight and government reform has release this and for the first time now we got the numbers. now it all becomes clear why everyone has been so very guarded about the numbers, chris. >> distract, delay, deny. wait until the news gets better and then you come back and say what's going on. that's been the case in politics long before barack obama was president of the united states. but that's a specialty of this administration. we've seen it on benghazi. we've seen it on a number of scandals facing the administration. they tried it on this one. unfortunately for them the stakes are too huge, too many millions of americans are involved. too much coverage is being disr
%. kathleen sebelius had the nerve to say the marketplace is working. if they were in a real marketplace and they had that kind of sales rate they would be going out of business. this is not working. >> they are in a position where they have to get 5 million -- that's the number that was cancelled. they have to get those 5 million signed up for insurance before a month from now. if they don't sign up by december 15 they don't have coverage january 1. according to our map, that means they need 156,000 sign-ups a day for the next 32 days just to break even. that's not counting the original 7 million they said they needed to make obama care work. >> even worse than that. you are being generous. they promised the american people -- president obama, november 6, by the end of the month we anticipate it will be working the way it is supposed to. by the end of november they promised the website would be working. starting december 1. everybody can go to health care.com and it will work like priceline. they have to have everybody signed up by the 15th. that's 15 days. 388,000 people a day they hav
in kathleen sebelius. last week the president said when asked the question directly, oh, well, i think she wishes things would have gone better. >> she's though i.t. expert. >> right. she doesn't write code. neither does president obama. i hope he would hold her accountable considering she was supposed to be telling him these things since he claims not to know anything about how the website would crash. >> you heard the professor saying he says they didn't anticipate people would be cancelled from plans. if that's true, someone ought to be held accountable. and someone who did it was kathleen sebelius. everyone knew but she was the architect of that piece of it. i have to run. good to see you. we are taking your comments on our top story. ickly understand my charts, and spend more time trading. their quick trade bar lets my account follow me online so i can react in real-time. plus, my local scottrade office is there to help. because they know i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. i'm with scottrade.

, software issues, many of which need to be fixed. this from kathleen sebelius. warning earlier this week, quote, this isn't a magic turn-on switch. the experience is improved every day. from not working at all in the beginning of october. the president, being optimistic today encouraged people who backed the law to talk up the advantages of health care over the thanksgiving holiday. asking them to try to convince their relatives to go enroll. although if the anyone needs help with insurance and enrolling while the turkey is roasting, don't call the call center. it will be closed tomorrow. you can't make this stuff up. the biggest news of all came just hours ago when the administration announced millions of american workers will be blocked from using the website all together told they cannot, should not and will not be permitted to use the online health care.gov option until november of next year. by the way, it will be after the midterm elections. marc thiessen is a former speech writer for president george w. bush. it's usually no accident when they release news like this late in the da
me. if i was kathleen sebelius i would not be picking out redecorating plans. >> he asked if she should be fired and whether she's still got his confidence. the president dodged it. he said do you have the full confidence of kathleen sebelius? he said, she didn't write the code. she would be the first to admit there would be a lot more questions asked. is she still the right person? he said the buck stops with me. if he were going to fire her, wouldn't it have already happened? >> no. we'll end up with a health care czar because they can't get b b somebody through the senate. they will let the whole rollout of disaster be her fault. after they are done they will launch her back to kansas and say, now meet this guy you have never heard of who is the new health czar because the evil republicans in the senate won't confirm our great choice. she needs to be there. if you're going to fire her, you have to keep her long enough to be to blame for everything. >> it's sick how things work in wash war. thank you. >> you bet. >> we are just getting started. the president's new effort to dig
. the defendant is kathleen sebelius's department of health and human services. they administer obama care. >> this is all over -- >> the religious liberty mandate. >> and the contraceptions employers will have to provide to employees. so the administration tells the court -- take out the legalese. what does it say? >> what they are saying basically is we have the grandfather provision. they don't say, by the way, that's what the president is relying on to say if you like your health care plan you can keep it, period. we have the this grandfather provision. but it's fading away. in fact, by the end of 2013, we anticipate that most of what was covered by the grandfather provision would lose their coverage. >> the shocking thing is it's not only those on the individual. it is most group health plans. >> they cite to a kaiser study about employer health plans. the whole thing. they cite to page in the federal register also about employer health plans and basically estimates that 7 of 10 people on the high end estimate who have employer health plansing get their coverage at work will close the
that the regulations by kathleen sebelius were eliminating the grandfather clause. and nobody listened. i mean, they literally had nothing to do with the cancellation of the policies. >> and now what liberal democrats are saying to the president is man up, dude, you have to get out there and say this is the plan. but it is hard to blame republicans for that one, so he is going to keep crawfishing. >>> all right, health care going up for millions of americans as we learned price is may be going down for one political ally of president obama. joining me now, ron johnson, who was able to prevent the tax exemption care. this is something the unions have complained about for months now, saying oh, the bill, the law we love so much, the obama care turns out it could be bad for us because it will tax us to the tune of $25 billion, unions and other small businesses. and the president, first they asked him to give them subsidies, he said i can't do that under the law. and now he is trying to give them major, major tax breaks, and you're trying to stop it, how. >> i'm a very willing co-sponsor, what the
don't get paid for it. >> doctors are angry. kathleen sebelius says she doesn't work for the critics. 700,000 plus doctors don't work for you. >> yet you are being controlled by the rules and regulations. >> great point. a survey came out this week. 40% say they won't play ball with obama care. what choice do they have? >> they have to go to a cash business. >> if they can, they will. all cash businesses are on the way up. more concierge medicine. they can join a hospital, if the hospital is playing ball with with obama care. you might get to keep your doctor, but maybe not your hospital. fewer hospitals are accepting -- working with this insurance. >> you don't even know. i will tell the viewers. that our health care providers, our policies were cancelled here. we have to find a new policy. we have a new option. i called my physician and said do you take this insurance? no, no, no. i can't say it's due to obama care but it's a quince kens. haung. >> good to see you. >> "the kelly file" is investigating your obama care stories. maybe i just told you mine that's due to banl. i can't k
kathleen sebelius for more. good to see you tonight. as the president was out there with the 800 number he knew that basically was just another way of sending people to the website ultimately. >> it's a facade. it's one of several facades, megyn. the president already has a nobel prize for peace. i think he's shooting for one in fiction to send people to the mail instead of the website when you know you are going in exactly the same queue is to create an appearance that everything is going swimmingly when you know otherwise. >> why can't there be honesty? we picked it up with marc. why can't he say, i didn't tell the truth or broke a promise. i broke a critical promise and millions of american peoples are hurting because of it. this is what i will do. we don't have that. what i said. this is what he said. what we have said was if you had a policy that didn't change. that's not what he said. now the thing about, oh, you can just call the 800 number. that just directs people back to the website. >> i could have sworn he said "period" at the end and now he's addededed a lengthy footnote. if a
. and these regulations that kathleen sebelius had pushed through shortly after obama care became law. hobbling the ability of people to keep their plan, as the president claimed they would. you read it. you saw it. and you went to the senate floor to do what? >> i took a bill to repeal that particular provision so that people would be able to keep their insurance, that they were promised they could keep. this presidential mantra that goes on and on, the democrats believe. and as a result they defeated my repeal amendment. and so we're still stuck at this point with the same thing. >> how many democrats voted in favor of your proposal? >> every one of the democrats voted in favor of it. that puts america at risk and it should put their jobs at risk. >> they voted against your attempt to fix this regulation? >> that is right. my attempt to make what the president was saying come true, he didn't like it. he likes the mantra, the mantra was still on the white house website at 4:00 this afternoon, saying if you like what you have got, you can keep it. and you don't have to do a thing to keep your p
as they go on and see how much their premiums are about to be hiked. kathleen sebelius said, well, we have no specific plan but apparently they are considering, possibly subsidizing the insurance policies of people who required no subsidy on the individual insurance market and were fine with the plan until they were cancelled thanks to obama care. >> they are flailing around. a premium subsidy doesn't help if your deductible doubled. it doesn't help if you lost your docker to. the premium subsidies aren't a solution to begin with for people losing their doctors, seeing deductibles double. they are offering premium subsidies -- used to be for low income the people. now they are offering it to middle income people to cover health insurance they don't want or need. we are going to build a taxpayer now just not for low income people to get substance abuse care and maternity care but we'll do it for middle income people, too. so let's bill the taxpayer for the disaster. >> and there is a real question about whether there is more money for that kind of thing. >> yeah. >> and can president obama
-election. but senator landrieu, she voted for this law. and they said look at the federal register, kathleen sebelius put all the regulations in place that will actually make all the grandfather laws meaningless, she voted against him. so did all of the others, now, when they come out and say they're shocked, shocked, let me fix it for you. >> it doesn't matter whether they're believed or not. the fact is, they want to do something, they're feeling frustrated, happy people don't tend to call their senators. so it is not surprising the feinstein numbers are 37-18, as james pointed out, the overwhelming majority of the people are going to do better under this law. and the president is trying really hard to fix it and he needs to be given a little bit of time. the party can't panic -- >> that is one thing he doesn't have right now is time. people are about to lose their insurance come january first, if they don't have replacement insurance there is a lot of questions about who will take care of them and their families. coming up, one questionable ad and one angry lawmaker, he is asking did really change
. >> kathleen sebelius was at an event when it failed in front of her. >> yeah. this website, the problems keep coming. she was there. somebody said, this is great. it's working. she was smiling. when it didn't work you saw the smile disappear. >> wah-wah. good to see you. >> you, too. >> president obama has taken a credibility hit with statements like if you like your plan, you can keep it, period. my next guest says obama care is the president's katrina or iraq. he defends the comparison. saying that the president has a credibility problem that's similar to the one developed by president george w. bush after his handling of katrina and iraq. ron fornier is a national correspondent. good to see you. people didn't like that comparison. particularly people on the left. saying you have to be crazy. people died after hurricane katrina. they died in the iraq war. how can you compare the failed rollout of obama care to that? >> that's the oldest trick in the book. of course i'm not crises. there is no comparison between iraq and katrina and obama care. there haven't been thousands of deaths with oba
